JOURNEY TO OPTIMUM HEALTH FOOD + HERBAL MEDICINE 

Experience well-being at every stage of life

Does this sound familiar ...?

  • Sometimes, you're overwhelmed with busyness and stress, not knowing where to begin.

  • You're feeling trapped and frustrated when making health changes to enhance your energy levels and mood. Despite having a lot of information, it isn't easy to make it all stick.

  • You're prepared to find what truly suits you and explore your path. Despite trying others' methods, self-blame arises when they don't align. Remember, if it doesn't resonate, it's simply not the right fit.

  • Your stress and anxiety might be hindering your motivation to make changes and prioritize self-care activities.

  • You feel unsure about the ability to stick to a program or to make lasting changes can be a barrier.

  • You feel confused with so much conflicting information about health and wellness, that you may not know where to start or what's best for you.

  • Sometimes, staying in the familiar—even if it's not healthy—is easier than stepping into the discomfort of change.

  • You are feeling constantly tired or fatigued can make the idea of starting a health program seem overwhelming.

Small Moves, Lasting Changes

Health takes time to sort out because it often involves making lifestyle changes, forming new habits, and addressing underlying issues. Here's why working with several sessions in the long term can be more effective than isolated sessions:

  1. Behavior Change: Multiple sessions allow for ongoing support and guidance in implementing and sustaining these changes.

  2. Understanding Root Causes: Through multiple sessions, a deeper understanding of these root causes can be gained, leading to more effective and sustainable solutions.

  3. Building Skills: Learning new skills, whether it's cooking healthy meals, managing stress, or exercising properly, takes time and practice. 

  4. Tracking Progress:  This keeps the client accountable but also allows for adjustments to the plan as needed based on how the client is responding.

  5. Consistent Support: Multiple sessions provide ongoing encouragement and guidance, can boost motivation and confidence.

  6. Holistic Approach: Working over several sessions allows for a comprehensive and integrated approach.

  7. Creating Lasting Change: Sustainable health improvements often require more than just a quick fix. Long-term sessions allow for the gradual implementation of changes that can become lasting habits.

My Approach

I like to work hand-in-hand with my patients. There are different approaches for each patient, and I focus on their  unique needs. I have trained as a researcher and base my data on an empirical approach. Still, I like to go beyond the clinical symptoms to understand that we can develop illness in many ways. The causes may be emotional, physical, spiritual, or all of them combined. 

 

My approach is to educate and offer different methods to my patients to live healthier by using preventative holistic herbal medicine and evidence-based solutions to get to the root cause of their unique needs. 

 

The consultation aims to provide a road map with healthier alternatives and lifestyle changes to restore health through plants, so patients feel informed and empowered. I trained in vitalist nutrition, macrobiotic and energetic diet, intermittent fasting and mindful eating which are the tools that I use in my consultations as a nutrition therapy. 

 

My philosophy is to bring awareness of the cycles and rhythms of life that align with nature. A healthy individual connects to the earth, the air, plants, and people from their heart and live life with joy and purpose.

Depending on your medication, herbal treatments may not be viable due to interactions. It's essential to inform your GP about herbal formulas.

Herbs can reduce some medication doses and side effects, supporting the body's healing without long-term side effects.
